A Juneau man faces new charges after he’s already been sentenced for burglarizing area homes.
Joseph A. Allen, 30, was indicted by a Juneau grand jury on Friday on fifteen charges of felony burglary, theft, and robbery for at least seven incidents that allegedly happened in November and December of last year. During at least one burglary attempt on the day after Christmas, Allen allegedly was armed, and threatened or used force against a woman with two children.
One of the charges includes first degree vehicle theft.
Allen has already been sentenced to twelve months and fifteen months in prison in connection with two other burglary cases.
